The Falcons are not going to fire Dan Quinn for the 2018 season

Things could get very bad the rest of the way for theA Atlanta Falcons, who are 1-4 and havena€™t played more than a half of solid defense in the last three weeks. Theya€™re coming off the second-worst loss by points (there were worse losses Ia€™m not going to dwell on) in the Dan Quinn era. This is the first time theya€™ve found themselves in this deep a hole five games in under DQ, period.

So ita€™s understandablea€”and inevitablea€”that the calls for Quinn were going to start. Theya€™re fairly quiet at the moment, but make no mistake that if the Falcons put a losing season on the books in 2018, there will be no shortage of fans and analysts who suggest pushing him out the door. Theya€™ll point to Quinna€™s always questionable clock and in-game management, the lack of discipline this team seems to fall into for long stretches, and the defensive ineptitude, though much of that is genuinely due to injury.

Of course, while there are legitimate arguments to be had about the weakness of Quinn and this coaching staff more broadly, any discussion of the coach losing his job is.
